RECURSIVE PROOFS: Proof One
Inside the wide slow motion of snow
Philip knocks his mug, it wobbles, a jackrabbit in the room. Castle startles, sitting up on the caribou skins between her and the plywood floor: “Everything is melting.”
Her mattress of skins: a collapsing star. Her hair the colour of muskoxen horns, her chest rising, falling as though taking in a savage wind.
“It was just a dream, sweet heart.”
“The animals were running. Crushing each other.”
